Aviation Career Overviews
Aviation offers many varied exciting and rewarding opportunities.
Entry level positions with an airline, cover a wide variety of operations and duties.

No previous experience is required, although you may be required to work evening or early-morning hours, adhere to a strict physical appearance, and lift heavy objects. Entry level positions such as Pilot, or Mechanic require special licenses issued by the Federal Aviation Administration, and/or specific previous work experience. Specific hiring requirements for these positions may also be obtained by viewing the job posting details or contacting the specific airline.
To eliminate any confusion, all positions are regarded as customer service positions. Every second an airline employee spends with a passenger or potential passenger is critical.

Passengers may never see you, but they will remember their telephone conversation, the comfort of their flight, and the way their baggage arrived; safely, timely at the correct destination. They will thank you by flying your airline over and over again.

Why do you need to change your career?
Recognize what you don't like about your present career. Name specific sources of discontent. Some possible reasons are given below. Perhaps you can think of others that are relevant to your situation.
- You have skills you enjoy using, but your present job doesn't allow you to use them.
- Your current job doesn't give you the monetary benefits that your work deserves.
- You want to find a job that pays what you believe the job is worth.
- You want to find work that is its own reward, that is satisfying and meaningful and that has intrinsic value, regardless of earnings.
- You want a change of pace, to slow down and to have more time for yourself, your family and the community.
- You're ready for a new challenge.
- You want the chance to grow and learn in a direction that your present situation won't permit.
- You want to enhance your image and prestige.
- You don't like your present schedule, the hours, the shifts, the overtime or the lack of flexibility.
- You're unemployed and you want to broaden your job search and explore new fields.
- You're employed, but things at work are not as much fun anymore. Perhaps the company has changed hands or you have a new boss who doesn't support your career growth.
- You feel you're ready for a change of environment and maybe a new career too.
Before you make drastic career changes:
Stop and consider:
Can you come up with creative ways to solve your problems without changing careers? For instance, would you be content to transfer to a different department, division or even a different company where you would have the same job in the same field?
Is your discontent related to:
- The job itself?
- The company environment?
